Abstract
The electro-optic property of electron-irradiated poly- (vinylidene fluoride-trifluoroethylene) (PVDF-TrFE) copolymer is presented. It is found that this special treated polymer not only has a giant electrostriction and relaxor ferroelectric behavior but also has a relatively good electro-optic effect. Thus, this copolymer may be a good candidate for making fast speed electro-optic modulators and switches, which are critical components for information optics.
